Default mule table saw/ router fence combo

Hi everyone,this is my first time using a forum. Please tell me if anyone has the mule combo fence and how it is. Is it worth getting or would you recommend getting a separate router fence.Where did you buy your fence?

Ive seen folks use both ways - router add on to tablesaw fence or separate router table fence.

Tablesaw fences need to be parallel with miter slots and the saw blade. Router table fences do not. You can skew your fence at any angle to the bit safely.

Many router tables do not have t-slots or fences parallel to the bit/table sides/etc. Many router table fences clamp on the sides of the tabletop and can be positioned to make routing operations safer and easier to perform.

A common tablesaw mounted fence I've seen is basically a box - whatever length and height desired - mounted to the tablesaw fence. Dust collection happens from one end through the middle of the box. One end of the box has an opening for a vacuum/dust collector hose - the other end is sealed. The middle of the fence has a recess cut in for the bit to sink into. Safetly, support and dust collection all in one.
